Peace on Earth

Hello Everyone!!  As you read this, I'm away with the family on a short vacation!  YAY!!  :)  After a busy four days in Sydney working at the Sydney Paper Crafts Festival in the Copic Booth followed by a full, yet wonderful day teaching the Copic Certification Class; hubby decided that it was a good time to take a break!!!  :)  For today's card I'm featuring one of the new tag sets released by ODBD this month!  This is the Holly Tag Set and the sentiment is from the same set!!!  As a little extra, the background is stamped using the Poinsettia Background stamp!!

I started with a base of Riding Hood Red and layered with gold and white.  The white was stamped with the Poinsettia Background stamp in Antique Linen for a subtle background.  Next is another piece of RHR that has been punched both sides with the MS Deco Fan punch and topped with some Echo Park Merry Christmas DP.  The Holly Tag has been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black (the sentiment is from the same set) onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (R24, R29, G24, G28) and then cut out using ODBD's custom Tag Die (how EASY does that make cutting these out!!).  I've added some white organdy ribbon vertically over the card and then attached the die cut with some red satin ribbon.  I've finished by adding a red satin bow that I've made with my Bow Easy and a couple of red pearls to the corner.

Stamps - Holly Tag Set, Poinsettia Background (ODBD)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Riding Hood Red, Gold Gloss, White, Echo Park Merry Christmas DP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Antique Linen
Accessories - Copics, Tag Die (ODBD), MS Deco Fan Border Punch, Bow Easy, Red Satin Ribbon, White Organdy Ribbon, Red Pearls, Foam Tape.

Well that's all from me today, thanks for visiting!!  :)
